This is also the traffic diversion route for the southern sector of Western Heights, especially during peak traffic periods. Sturges Road will be closed to traffic between Swanson Road and Vintage Drive/Septimus Place from Friday 10 December to Wednesday 15 December. This temporary road closure is required for the final road forming and surfacing of the new Sturges Road Bridge. During this time motorists will need to take alternative routes (to the left). Pedestrian access to the rail station will be via the northern (eastbound platform) side only. Please follow the pedestrian detour signs to access the westbound platform. The road will re-open on Wednesday 15 December, when two lanes of the new bridge will be open to traffic. A third lane will open in the new year once the installation of bridge artwork is complete.

The tattoo tour involves the band members getting inked up in nearly every location they play at. Photo: LAURA TAIT Body art: Drummer Josh Crowther gets a tattoo of an hour glass over a rose with the catchphrase ''time waits for no man'' while on tour. By MICHELLE COOKE They already had a total of 30 tattoos between the three of them -- but rock and roll band The Twitch decided to spice up their latest tour with some new inked additions. Tattooists throughout the country have made their marks on lead singer and bassist Fleur Jack from Waiatarua, drummer Josh Crowther from Te Atatu and guitarist Jesus Raine from Kingsland. They've been tattooed on stage and even while playing live on a Christ- church radio station. An Indian warrior, Batman emblem and chicken drumsticks are just some of the seven new tattoos the group has collected on the road so far. The group ran a com- petition for fans to send them tattoo ideas during the tour and the winning design will be tattooed on one band member. We had already done two tours this year and called them both album release tours' so we fig- ured we needed to do something a bit more outrageous this time,'' Fleur says. The quirky, eccentric nature of the trio has kept them together since they formed at MAINZ music school in 2003. The trio has since released two albums, toured around the country at least 10 times, played in Australia and came second at the 2005 international Battle of the Bands competition in Hong Kong. We are friends first, band second. We're not in it for the money or the fame, we're in it to have a great time all the time,'' the Kiwi FM radio host says. When people come to our gigs they expect to see a bit of carnage as the band has a tendency to bring out the wild child in people.'' Although they all lead busy lives outside of the band they still find time to practice and come up with new material. Jesus -- whose friends know him by that name for many years -- says the tattoo tour is just one of the many crazy adventures The Twitch has been involved in. Josh says The Twitch is guaranteed to get people on the dance floor. It's the most honest display of rock and roll you will see,'' Josh says. It's very high energy and entertaining. You won't leave disap- pointed.'' The Twitch's last show of the tattoo tour is at the Dog's Bollix in Auckland's CBD on Saturday night. The Twitch play their song Greenlight while lead singer Fleur Jack gets tattooed at the same time at www. westernleader.co.nz.
